Download your STL file​

After creating your lithophane you can download the 3D model as a STL file! Just press the download button, it is that simple!

Lithophane + Attribute Together​

By pressing this button, the attributes and lithophane will be combined into a single 3d model. Such that you can print it in a single print.

Lithophane / Attribute apart

If you added an attribute to your lithophane you can also download the lithophane and attribute apart from each other. This will create two STL files. One with only the attribute and one with only the lithophane. This allows you to use different settings and/or filaments for the lithophane and attributes.

Color lithophane
